Jacynthe,

Thank you for your reply.

From the 1852 census, we know that Bridget’s husband is dead.

On William Wadsworth Jr. (1841-1926), death certificate his mother is listed as Bridget Hennessey and father as William Wadsworth. William Jr. married Celina Romain in 1870.

Bridget Hennessy (1845-1911) like you stated married Joseph Lafrenier in 1865. At one time, her name is listed as Bridget Hennessy Wadsworth.

You can see how confusing this is getting. I have a theory, no proof that Bridget reverted to her maiden name? Alternatively, lived with Martin Hennessy.

Allo,
Bridget Hennesy, 70 years old, wife of Martin Hennesy died Feb 25th 1880, Chapeau, Pontiac. http://interactive.ancestry.ca/1091/d13p_33761326/12237989?b...

1871 Census, with Edward 36 years old http://interactive.ancestry.ca/1578/4395500_00238/844504?bac...

Is it possible that she married Martin Hennesy and then had a child with a Wadsworth and then a Gleason ? or its 2 different Bridget ?

Jacynthe,

I did see the listed death of Bridget Hennessy on February 25 1880, in Chapeau, Quebec (age 70).

Your assumption could be correct re the different fathers; it’s one of those happenings in genealogy that we may never know the truth.

Thank you once again for your input and interest.

William who married Celina Romain, his mother was Bridget O'Malley, http://interactive.ancestry.ca/7921/ONMS932_3-0932/1548735?b... which is pretty close to the mother of Catharine Hennesy, baptism in Buckingham, 1839.

What a confusing research !

Jacynthe,

I didn’t want to make this more confusing than it is; that’s the reason I did not include the following information.

I obtained a copy of the marriage license of William Wadsworth Jr. and Celina Romain from the parish in Westmeath, Ontario.
William states his father’s name is William Wilwith (could be the French interpretation of the name WADSWORTH) and his mother’s name Bridget Conley.

Reference to Catherine Hennessey’s baptism in Buckingham 1839, what was her mother’s name? I am not enrolled in Ancestry at the moment so I cannot follow your link.

I attached pictures of Catherine baptism. The copy is not very good. Also a copy of Martin baptism and the copy I found for William's wedding where the name of his mother is O'Malley.
